Last week marked the end of the most active Atlantic hurricane season since 2005, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. With 17 named storms, including six major hurricanes, the season also ranks among the most active in records dating back to 1851.

Senior Research Engineer Sandra Knight, Research Professor Gerald Galloway, Assistant Professor Allison Reilly, Professor Bilal Ayyub, and Senior Research Engineering Ed Link, all of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Center for Disaster Resilience, were interviewed by The New York Times, the Los Angles Times, CBS This Morning, and more.
